glaciation, or ice ages, over the last two million years. an ice age consists of a gradual cooling of the climate and growth of glaciers worldwide, terminated by a warm, interglacial climate, during which glaciers melt back and retreat. by reconstructing the glacial history of the earth, we know understand that changes in sea level and the evolution of life are also linked with glacial cycles. what's less clear, however, is the cause of ice ages. a number of theories attempt to explain the processes responsible for glacial cycles. there have been about 10 ice age cycles over the last one million years. any theory to explain these cycles must take into account the regular repetition of glacial activity and the link between glacial cycles and global climate. the repetitive nature of ice ages during the past two million years suggests that the world may again be moving toward a period of deep freeze. this is not likely to begin within our lifetimes, but may commence during the next few thousand years. most scientists believe ice ages are tied to changes in the position of earth as it orb

narrator: why do people grow old? is it possible to slow down the aging process? these questions may one day be answered. but for now, the inevitability that each person will grow old is the one thing that all human beings have in common. oh, goody. one, two, three, four, five, six... aging is the pattern of life changes that occur naturally as people grow older. contrary to popular belief, aging does not begin the moment you find your first gray hair, nor does it begin at 65. some changes begin at birth and continue until death, others begin at maturity, and end at death. the physiological changes that come with aging are a natural phenomenon and unavoidable. unfortunately... human bodies are a bit like american cars, they have planned obsolescence. our genetic blueprint makes sure that we grow old enough to have children, but once that's been done, there's relatively little selection. and so as we grow older, our parts begin to wear out. in essence, we begin to rust. narrator: during youth, when lung capacity is the greatest, muscles the firmest, motor skills quickest, enduranc
